Slow release fertilizers

Hello, all

Some time ago someone referred to a previous discussion years ago (possibly through IBS?)concerning Osmocote and similar slow release fertilizers.  I have been unable to find it in the archives.  Can anyone recall the date or answer the question that the brief mention tantalized me with:  what did the research indicate about heat and it's effect on this type of fertilizer?  If this rather garbled message rings a bell for anyone, please let me know.  I need to fertilize some bulbs.

It's rained 9 inches here since Sunday.  Daffodils are starting to bloom as are Iris reticulata.  Zone 8/9, Sierra foothills, Northern California, wet in winter, very dry and hot in summer.
