You can dig and transplant landscape plants either in the spring or in the fall months. Now is a great time to move your hydrangea. Expect the roots to be out as far as the branch tips and probably within the top 8-12 inches of soil. Dig a trench around the entire plant at and then dig down and toward the center. You should be able to unearth the entire root mass if you dig methodically around the entire plant, going deeper each time you move the shovel. Replant as soon as possible and water it in well to help settle the soil. Good luck with the move.
