broom corn substitute
I'm interested in making my own brooms to help save money.
Broom corn seeds are sorta expensive , plus I have a short growing season. Broom corn is suppose to take about 110 days.
I would like something more in the 60 days time frame and much cheaper. I live in around many feed corn farms. Does anybody know if cornstalks can be used as a substitute for broom corn?
Is there any thing else I can grow that may work ?
We have swamps here also , so if there is anything in there that may work , please let me know.
I have heard that birch and willow trees branches can be used but they make poor brooms at best.
Thanks for any help.
