walnut trees being poisons to plants
Posted by Carolyn from Canada on 2002-01-28 21:50:30

I have a large walnut tree on my property and have been told that I won't be able to plant other plants around it. Does anybody know if this is true? Thanks for the help.

    -Walnut trees contain a growth inhibitor called,juglone.Many plants are very sensitive to it but there are some plants less affected.Some are: hosta,clematis, daphne,astilbe,begonia. If you go into the Q&A library,enter walnut trees,there is more info.
