    Hi, Last year I got my old wire back fence replaced with a wooden one and stapled my favourite trellis- concrete re-enforcing mesh up and then planted an Iceberg rose.....it isnt doing too well and I am going to have to dig it up and plant it somewhere else.

    The walnut tree is in the neighbor's yard, not that I would want to cut it down if it was on my side cos it does give alot of nice nuts....The neighbor's nuts, I call them....many play upon words. lol

    I'd really like something to grow up the trellis here but just dont know what will handle being under a walnut tree.
    Any ideas?

    Not sure ANYTHING will grow under a walnut tree. I forget the chemical compound walnuts produce but it stops most things rom growing under them.

    That toxic product is Juglone. It kills certain plants but doesn't harm others. You can google "juglone tolerant plants" to get a list.

    Are you talking about a black walnut or an English walnut? Different trees in the walnut family produce juglone, if my memory is right pecans and hickories do. But Black walnuts produce the most juglone. Not sure where English walnuts are on that list.

    And since black walnuts are indigenous to US, I bet it is an English Walnut growing in Trish's neighborhood.
