Hi again, Louise.....yes, I did recommend using John Innes 'seed' compost in the opening post of this thread (and many times since) although any compost specifically produced for sowing seed will do. This information was given for autumn sown seed as it contains less nutrients than others, hence helps prevent the seedlings making too much growth over winter.
Of course, it's worth noting that if you're sowing your seed now, multi-purpose compost will be just fine, as you will be encouraging growth from now on.
Hope that makes sense!
