I bought mine from a Hydro Store in Florida when i lived there.
My local hardware store carries Pro Mix but I think it is BX maybe. Last time I bought it for my vegetable garden maybe 10 years ago it was like $35 a bag. Pricey stuff but I live in a yuppie area…

I use compost soil. Add worm castings and magnesium! That’s it!
Me, too. Compost consists of grass clippings, maple leaves, and a little chicken manure (little, 'cause the 'yotes ate my flock), and top coated with wood ash during the flowering cycle.

Whatever you do don't use this because this shit is just chock-full of fungus gnats. Every time I water my seedlings it produces more gnats. Did not have that with my last soil which was Miracle-Gro but it was the vegetable and Herb mix.

I use MG Twice As Big and haven't had any problems. Haven't seen gnats since I stopped using FF soils.
