Harvest seed sprays for dried arrangements or make an old-fashioned broom. Bloomfield, Colorado, the home of Botanical Interests, was named after the broom corn plant around 1900 when a lot of farmland was devoted to growing it. Brooms were traditionally made from the straw-like fibers after stripping off the seeds. Broom Corn is a member of the grass family, so instead of growing tassels and ears like sweet corn, it is topped by richly colored shiny seeds. Harvest them for fall decor and dried arrangements, or grow enough to make your own broom! No GMOs: All our seeds are untreated. www.botanicalinterests.com.
