Brigantine Garden Club news, Feb. 17 Brigantine Garden Club news, Feb. 17 Bed tenders are the lifeblood of our organization. Without their hard work and dedication, this island that we love would be much less beautiful. Have you noticed that every bed is different? That is because every bed tender is different. Each tender makes his or her own choice as to flowers and style for the bed. With so many beautiful plants to pick from, we get a wonderful variety to appreciate. Bed tenders receive a small stipend each season; many of them go over and above this amount at their own expense. Some bring flowers from their own home gardens when they do separations. Sometimes we get donations from kind people.
