Just finished my last bag of Westlands (good stuff) and bought 3 bags of Asda MP 70 litres for £10 9as I was in the store anyway. It is rubbish for seeds, clumping and woolly, a clearly visible mix of different coloured stuff ranging from dark brown to almost white shreddings. No way you could sprinkle a fine layer to cover small seeds.It will be fine for what I plan to use it for - bedding plants in pots that I will top up with liquied fertiliser. For the extra £1 I'll go back to Westland
Have the same experience of Asda compost - it also dries out easily, too easily, OK for filling in pots, raised beds etc.
Homebase is a good compost and always on 4 for 3.
