The smaller plants are easy to move. The dogwoods may be very difficult as they don't take kindly to the idea! The hydrangeas and daphne should be doable. Try to get as much of the soil as is practical. Wider may be better than deeper depending on where the roots are growing in that soil. This won't be easy since the soil is so heavy. I would try to dig and slip a tarp under the plant then dig the other side and slide it up on the tarp. This is easier than lifting them as several folks can grab tarp corners making lifting easier.
The best time to do this is in mid to late fall. Then move them to the new home asap, plant them at the same depth they were previously growing, and water them in well.
Good luck with your move. Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
