Walnuts produce juglone. Juglone tends to inhibit the growth of plants around the walnut (giving the walnut a competitive advantage). Plants differ in their sensitivity to juglone. Some plants are sensitive to juglone, while others are tolerate.

The sensitivity of many plants to juglone is unknown as few plants have been experimentally tested for their tolerance or sensitivity to juglone,. There is no specific information on the sensitivity of buckthorn to juglone.
