Shipping is very high. One has to add $2 per plant as well as a substantial base shipping charge. Fans are average in size, with very few being more than a double fan. While bonuses are sent, many of the bonuses are Maryott cultivars that frequently are not suitable for other climates.
On August 27th, 2014, connoisseur added the following:
A large flat-rate box (actually larger than what Maryott's used for my order) is only $17.45, $15.80 if processed online. I see no reason for shipping charges of $20 to $30 unless the order is very large. On Aug 27, 2014, Maryott's Gardens responded with:

We do apologize for the high shipping cost. It is based on the actual cost to ship the plants. We make no money on shipping. The reason most of the plants were just double fans instead of clumps is that the size will make the shipping even higher. We have customers in Indiana growing nearly all of our own creations. I think you will be surprised how nicely they perform there."

Plants were large with average sized fans for June, Roots were hacked on all 3 orders on the one side of the plants, thus they did not do as well as plants received elsewhere that were not cut off in this fashion. email replies were fast and friendly. Shipping average

I think after 82 positive responses, we deserve a neutral. Sorry about the short roots on one side. Happens getting them dug from the field. Maryott's"
