Search on ebay, for tiger nuts or chufa. They are often used as a carp bait, usually they should be raw.

One item example is this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160836039264&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:GB:1123

Easy to sprout. Soak in water overnight. Then sown in soil near a source of heat, at a very warm temperature. They will quickly sprout. Easy to grow. Keep soil warm and on slightly dry side.
 
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes; art is knowing which ones to keep. Keep this tiny ad:
