Hi Travis, do you know what zone you live in? You might get away with transplanting now if you live in a mild summer and mild winter climate, but otherwise, you'll be giving it a shock in the middle of the growing season, and during the heat of summer. The ideal time to transplant these are in the late fall or winter. When you do transplant, remember to dig up a good size root ball to help it get a strong start in its new home, plus give the plant a healthy pruning to minimize the shock as well. If you do all this and make sure it's given the right amount of water the first few weeks, they should take well to their new home.

Deadheading hydrangeas does no harm, certainly makes the plant look nicer, and hopefully will encourage some new blooms.

Good luck!
