I got back in the garden about three years ago so have been trying everything.
Tried mainly bowers and verve(big bags) first year and both great. Then i got some bowers with slug eggs in and thought verve is cheaper and then the next lot of verve was pants nothing would grow in it so dug it out and spread around the beds with some plant food.
Tried bulk bags from a local supplier had one bad bag with bits of brick in complained so they apologised and gave me another free which was excellent .£60-80 for 800 litres depending on what compost you want and how many you buy.
This year seeds are going in John Innes I remember it from child hood and plants and bulbs in miracle grow. The miracle grow did give me a fright after the slug egg incident but it was just slow release plant food.
Its hit and miss buying compost, maybe split bags at a reduced priced are the best at least you know what your getting.
