Chris........I'd say you were doing the right thing considering the plants you are growing and selling. A minimum order with transparent P&P costs is fair .
Shopping for plants is much the same as shopping for anything else.....you check the price per plant plus delivery. If a new supplier, you can't know the quality beforehand. Not many people will return to a supplier when they have been disappointed with their purchase.
The larger suppliers are often going to win re total price per plant. However, their products are often disappointing, their customer service can be bad and customers end up being disappointed.
More often than not, if things sound too good to be true, they usually are. A good supplier with transparent charging and the ability to deal with their customers properly will ( or should ! ) win every time
