Walnut is very toxic- even to other plant life. There are many plants
that do not take too well to growing under or near walnuts. They release
growth inhibitors into the soil and I'm sure the same compounds are
released by the fallen leaves when they decay. Just to smell the leaves
or the husks of the nuts you can tell they pack somekind of chemical

Certainly not a tree you want to have near your fish ponds or vegetable
