Oats and other seeds

I'm looking for some oat seeds for growing into oats that I can buy over the internet or locally in Bromley, Kent, UK, but not having much luck so far

I see a lot of oat grass being sold as cat grass or for juicing on Ebay.

Could this be an option?

I gather from other posts, you can't trust stuff from health food shop as they are sometimes processed

But someone said even groats found in bird seed might work

Any suggestions welcome thanks

Quite a selection of grains at Brown Envelope Seeds .. http://www.brownenvelopeseeds.com/category-s/1837.htm
I keep wanting to grow Hulless Oats, ideal for me as I have oats most mornings for breakfast, but I haven't got room to grow a decent quantity.

Disclaimer: I almost certainly haven't a clue what I'm talking about.
