Do all seed and cutting composts have a smaller particle size, and does
this make a big difference?

I've noticed recently that the multi-purpose I bought (Jack Magic from
Westland) has a lot of small stones in it, around 50mm so is probably no
use for seeds. Having bought 3 for 2, I'm stuck with it jsut for the
troughs and large pots

50mm?? That's 2 inches, hardly what I'd call small stones, I'd return
it regardless of whether it was a "3 for 2" or whatever.
