Hi and welcome!

Broom is a difficult plant to get seeds for... Not so much due to the lack of seeds, but rather many places have strong legal restrictions against importing and growing it. It's probably best to check up on your local laws before growing it. Where I live, it has an invasive status like kudzu.

Broom, I'm told, can have a damaging effect on the soil. here's a thread about it.
