I need to know if you can plant strawberries near a walnut tree. How far from the tee should they be?

Also need to know how close can I plant bush beans near onions?

Strawberries are reasonably tolerant of juglone (the chemical emitted from walnut trees). Plant them outside of the canopy of the tree where they will get lots of sunshine. Bush beans and onions can be planted within 8-12 inches of one another. Enjoy your garden.
