I’m with Bent- I put in on our flower beds and have great flowers. For the record it is not the juglone that causes the severe laminitis problems in horses. U of Ga has done a lot of the black walnut laminitis research and came to this conclusion. Just an FYI for you horse enthusiasts. The truly fascinating thing about the walnut laminitis is the horses don’t have to eat it to become affected. Ga. researchers muzzled horses and stalled them on BW shavings and they developed laminitis. Interesting but devastating problem.
