While developing the broom machine, its inventors also examined the broom handle, looking for a better way to secure the sorghum tassels to it. These inventors drilled two holes in the handle and inserted split pegs into the round holes. The broom corn was lashed onto the handle and pegs, using linen twine.

A compound decoction of Broom is recommended in herbal medicine as of much benefit bladder and kidney affections, as well as in chronic dropsy. To make this, 1 OZ. Broomtops and 1/2 oz. of Dandelion Roots are boiled in one pint of water down to half a pint, adding towards the last, 1/2 oz. of bruised Juniper berries. When cold, the decoction is strained and a small quantity of cayenne added. A wineglassful is taken three or four times a day.

In the mid-1820’s the Shakers, an industrious religious order, started making brooms, changing the design of the round broom: they eliminated the woven stems up the handle, the holes and the pegs, and used wire to bind their broom to the handle. They then put their broom in a vise, sewing it into the flat brooms we use today. While their flat broom sweeps a rough surface very well, it does not do as quick and thorough a job as the earlier round broom, on a smooth surface.

Plants are divided into families based upon their seeds, how and where they grow. Sorghum is a large family of plants (containing more than 200 varieties) some of which are high in sugar content, others low. Sugar cane and another variety (from which sorghum molasses is made) are examples of high sugar content sorghums. Millet, milo and broom corn are examples of low sugar content sorghums. In all cases, sorghums are annual plants with a single stem, ribbon-type leaves and tassels with seeds produced on them. Individual varieties grow to differing heights ranging from two to ten feet.. Tassel lengths vary from less than 6 inches in length up to over two feet. Sorghum vulgere, the variety we call broom corn, has the longest tassels. It is this variety which is used in the making of brooms.

The professionalization of broom-making appears to have begun in Anglo-Saxon England, where artisans known as “besom squires” in the southeastern region would take twigs from the many birch trees in the area, trim and then lash them to poles of chestnut and other woods. A bawdy 18th-century folk song called “The Besom Maker” makes fun of a female besom maker’s need to search the local woods for materials, and, along the way, other pleasures. The British broom trade of this region would continue for centuries alongside the various homemade techniques, and some practitioners still make brooms today, working as heritage craftspeople.
