I need to transplant a medium/large well established hydrangea bush ASAP. However, I don't know if this is the safest time of year. Should I act now or wait until fall? Any other transplanting tips on this bush would be very helpful. The bush has sentimental value and losing it would be tragic.

No more wilted blooms with Alum (it's in the spice isle) - Re-cut the stem and immediately stick the bottom 1/2″ of the stem in Alum (this helps the stem suck water) arrange as usual. It’s easy and works!
PRUNING hydrangea bushes should be pruned in late fall or early winter or they will not perform well the next year, but it’s an easy winterizing task. Prune them after the last leaves have fallen off and prune the stems of healthy established plants down to 24-36” high which allows for new growth on the canes in the spring. Prune back the number of new stems in the spring if you want larger and less numerous blooms in summer.
