Can I transplant my 5 mo. old hydrangeas in an area where ivy has grown if I cut back the ivy? It seems to be the perfect spot for shade/sun for my hydrangeas.

As long as you control the ivy and keep it from growing in and over your hydrangea, your hydrangea should be happy in the spot. Cutting back the ivy won't kill it so if you do not want the ivy in the same bed you will need to dig it out, roots and all. But, as long as you keep it from climbing up your hydrangea, it will make a nice ground cover in the bed. It's your decision. Enjoy your garden!
