During World War II, American submarine crews would hoist a broom onto their boat’s fore-truck when returning to port to indicate that they had swept the seas clean of enemy shipping. The tradition has been devalued in recent years by submarine crews who fly a broom simply when returning from their boat’s shake-down cruise. This tradition no doubt stems from the action of the Dutch admiral Maarten Tromp who tied a broom to his main mast after defeating the British admiral Robert Blake at the Battle of Dungeness in 1652. This has often been interpreted as a message that he would sweep the British from the seas. This story remains unsubstantiated, but may have its origin in the tradition of hoisting a broom as a sign that a ship was for sale, which seems more likely as Tromp had captured two of Blake’s ships in the battle.
Keep your garden tools organized and sharp by cleaning them and then filling those empty clay pots in your homestead with sand. Afterward, stick the tools in. The step by step DIY article is available here!
The modern homemaker can choose from a range of implements to clean his floors, including synthetic brooms, the constantly metastasizing Swiffer product line, and, of course, the vacuum cleaner. The last of these is highly effective at certain tasks (especially the cleaning of carpets), but most American homes still keep an old-fashioned broom around for its unfailing dependability. For a household item essentially perfected in its design so many decades ago, the broom’s staying power—both as a cleaning tool and cultural symbol of neat domestic tranquility—is remarkable and deserved.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Shrubs to 3 m tall, with green stems and yellow pea-like flowers. Refer to the Brooms table for a quick comparison of distinguishing characteristics. The brooms were originally introduced as landscape ornamentals. Scotch and Spanish broom were also extensively planted along highways in some areas to prevent soil erosion in the early half of 1900’s. Brooms have escaped cultivation and have aggressively invaded many natural areas. Scotch and French broom often form dense stands that displace native vegetation and wildlife. Infestations in forested areas increase fire hazard and on rangeland, diminish usability. Flowers and seeds of brooms contain quinolizidine alkaloids and can be toxic to humans and livestock when ingested. Foliage may be mildly toxic and is unpalatable to most livestock, except goats. Scotch and Spanish broom are used medicinally in Europe. However, Scotch broom is considered to be an unsafe herb by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Most (and possibly all) genera in the tribe produce 5-O-methylgenistein. Many genera also accumulate quinolizidine alkaloids, ammodendrine-type dipiperidine alkaloids, and macrocyclic pyrrolizidine alkaloids.
