The title pretty much says it all. I'm working out a companion planting plan for next year, and i have black walnut and butternut trees to consider.

I know onions and garlic are tolerant to juglone, but will leeks/ramps do well near the walnuts too?

Any experience is appreciated.

Regards,
Matt

Matthew McCoul : Leaks grow truly wild, and as transplants. or as volunteers ,They generally are very tolerant of wet conditions and places. I have planted
Walnut and Butternut on the sides of hills 5-10 feet above the places where I find Leaks, Trilliums are another easy to id flower that I use to find places
for Black walnut and for Butternut saplings and plant there, It is only my own personal theory that makes me hesitant to plant These saplings in ground
favored by Leeks!

Hopefully we both will get lots of second opinions !
