Moving a Hydrangea

Moving a Hydrangea

I've only known hydrangeas as plants in other people's yards before, but one came with the house. It was ratty and miserable when I moved in, but with two seasons' pruning and the water it was able to snag from the new vegetable bed last summer, it is now a rather happy critter of about 3'. The problem: to grow toward the light, it wants to spill over said vegetable bed. The BF's proposed solution is to move it. The challenge(s): it's about 4' from the Wisteria, and while I have no fear that said wisteria will recover from any root mutilation involved in the hydrangea's removal, I'm worried that it won't willingly let go of the hydrangea's roots without doing serious damage to the hydrangea. My inclination is to leave an established plant where it's happy and adjust the planting of annual vegetables to accommodate it. Will a hydrangea of this size put up with this sort of treatment, or am I being overly cautious? If it seems like a viable solution, any advice on how to do it? Is this a "Dig a spade-deep moat around the plant and leave it for a season to strengthen the root system inside that perimeter" situation, or just "grab a fork and comb it out of the ground as gently as possible"?
