I want to be able to open a bag and just use it. I did get some Lidl compost in an emergency. Three bags and an hours seiving later, I had one bag of chunks of wood, bark etc, and a six inch stainless steel nail., plus some bits of blue plastic for the bin.
I like Levington pro M3 best. Its peat based, handles well, and the plants did a lot better in a trial against Arthur Bowers that I also bought in a hurry one weekend.
My mum gets a pallet full of the Levington delivered and I split it with her. Garden centres dont usually stock it. The pro stuff is different to the levingtons sold in garden centres. You may find it in small nurseries that grow their own plants.
