I have a similar problem with tomatoes and cucumbers but in Wicks multi purpose compost. Geminated OK but only slowly grew on to the first 2 or 3 true leaves and then seemed to have stopped. I wondered about the compost, they have changed the printing on the bag and now say it is not suitable for seeding?
Also, I have a lot of mould on the compost. You can only see it on the sides of the peat pots but when you water it raises a small cloud of white powder from the surface.
Have re-sown some tomatoes in a different compost but the mould seems to have spread there as well!
