In the main I found, compost, I bought last year was poor quality, it was more luck than design that the occassional bag was good quality, so, thought ahead and made most of my own compost for this year.
Mine is a small garden with only three veg beds and a couple of flower beds so was able to store enough leaf mould and had space for a bin of horse muck to happily rot down over last year. This went on the veg beds in the autumn and along with spent compost from a failed Xmas spud crop which has been used to mulch the flower beds, what's in the full darlek will be for pots.
I'd advise a mix of bought and home grown compost.
Good luck with what you've bought.
