Tulips can fail to bloom if they are overcrowded and competing for moisture and nutrients, if they are planted too deeply, or if the tops are cut off rather than being allowed to ripen and die down on their own. I've also found in my own garden that they bloom beautifully the first year, not quite so spectacular the second year and by the third year they peter out completely. So even if you are giving yours the best care possible, they can still die off for no apparent reason. Hope this information is helpful in diagnosing the problem.
