I use multipurpose for everything - with a bit of vermiculite on top
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.

If it wasn't for chemicals we'd be organic.

Ditto. Best I've tried, not everybody's take on it is the same quality though. :lol:

Important thing is that it is not rich for seedlings and you don't get disease with which can happen with cheap compost.
