I can’t seem to find a definitive answer as to if juglone will hinder or harm figs. Does anyone here have any experience growing them close to one another?
The only thing growing well under my large wild black walnut trees is bush honeysuckle. Otherwise, it is empty.
I’ve cut down a medium size black walnut. I have yet to tell if it impacts the growth of other plants. I’m not sure how long the juglone can last from a dead tree.
Morton Arboretum has a list of a whole bunch of plants that grow well under a black walnut.
I was looking up service berries and currants when I visited their page last.
They say ribes are good as also amelanchier.
I did not see a mention of figs.
Let us know if you
find a definitive answer.
There is a bw overhanging some figs i have planted in raised beds, so no bw roots in the soil, but plenty of husks and leaves accumulate and rot there. Have not noticed any negative effects.
