1. Why Mallorn Trees Never Grew in Lindon

"They are not growing!" exclaimed a frustrated Gil-galad. 

The gardener sighed. The High King rather fancied himself a horticulturist, and upon receiving that box of Númenorean seeds, insisted on planting them himself. Unfortunately, all his gardening endeavors were doomed to failure. The gardener would often step in to avoid discouraging Gil-galad, but this plot was too near the king's quarters, and he dared not intervene. 

 "My lord," he began. "Perhaps if you cease digging the seeds up twice daily …" 

Gil-galad dismissed the comment. "It was never a problem. I think, rather, that Lindon's soil is unsuitable for these mellyrn."
