Planting Under Black Walnut Tree

Anonymous added on April 5, 2011 | Answered

What plants can I successfully plant under a Black Walnut tree that has an 8-inch diameter trunk? And, will I be more successful if I put more dirt around it to plant in (not at the base of the tree, of course)?

Adding soil will only help in the short term. You are better off planting plants that can tolerate black walnuts.
