Stem-less Spring Bulbs

Would anyone be able to explain why suddenly a crop of spring Tulips would appear without stems, or with short stems?
  I have a friend in the UK, where the spring bulbs are now beginning to bloom.  In the southern regions, the winter was unusually wet and warm this year; temperatures didn't drop below 40 degrees all season long.  In prior years, this person had no trouble, but it was colder and dryer.  I can see blasting and I can see totally blind results, but I don't understand why they would bloom but have no stems.  These were a fresh crop planted last autumn, just like every year.
