I planted a hydrangea last summer and suspect it is not getting enough sun since it hasn't come back quickly this year or bloomed. Can it be transplanted? If so, when is the best time to transplant?

The cooler months of spring or fall are the best times to dig and transplant hydrangeas. Since yours is not thriving, it's already under some stress. If you move it during the heat of summer, that might be enough additional stress to set it back even more. I'd wait until late summer/early fall when temperatures are cooler to move the plant. Best wishes with the move.
