Shipping: (1-6 plants = $10, 7-15 plants= $14, 16 or more plants = $21)

No handling fee besides the unintentional difference between estimated vs. actual shipping.  All fees are USPS values rounded and adjusted to cover shipping to the furthest potential destination from my zip code.  Customers in zip codes 22191, 22192, 22193 and 22194 have the option of FREE shipping. Just write “FREE” on the shipping line of the order form and provide a phone number.  If convenient, I can deliver to addresses in these zip codes unless we arrange another safe delivery location. No orders may be picked up at my location per county rules governing my business entity.

Order form: Page 1-Figure order total with fees.  Page 2-Total additional selections here.  Put amount in page 2 "subtotal” box on page 1.  Page 3- Substitution list.

Extras/Bonuses: All orders will be compensated for shipping with 2-3 extras of Diversity Acres choice depending on availablity.  Shipping can usually be compensated mostly if not entirely within this range of extras.  Extras may be of irises included in your order or others in our collection for sale or otherwise.   Bonuses are given based on your iris total value before shipping is applied (ei. the “Page Total” line on page 1 of the order form).  Orders with "iris total" values up to $50 qualify for one bonus.  For every $50 addition value one bonus is given up to 4 bonuses maximum (ei; $250 order still gets only 4 bonuses).  Bonuses are our choice from our complete collection of cultivars.  There  will not be a visble calculation of this on the order form or the website.  Extras/ Bonuses will be determined and noted once we recieve the paid order in our office.  You will see it on the order form copy shipped to you with your irises.

Substitutions:  I will substitute an iris of equal or greater value for any irises I cannot provide at the time I dig your order.   With our wacky weather these days even irises can get caught and suffer.  They can be doing fine one week and goen the next.  Should there be extenuating circumstances which keep me from providing you with a substitue iris I will communicate this to you prior to shipping your plants and discuss options on how to resolve the issue to your satisfaction.
