If you haven't already, try using a fertilizer that's designed especially for bulbs. It sounds like you're doing everything right - the flowers have a certain life cycle they will complete no matter what. Another possibility is proper watering.

To extend the season, you can plant tulips that bloom early, mid season and late.
