New walnut tree doesn’t appear to be growing?


I’m after some advice. I planted a walnut (common) tree at the beginning of April. I have also planted some other trees at around the same time which are all growing great. However all the walnut tree has done during this time is for the buds to open slightly and now they are black with a sticky residue. I’m not sure if this is normal or the tree is dying. It’s planted in full sun and has been water regularly during the dry weather. 

Any advice would be really appreciated as can’t get any response from the company I bought it from 



  • Thanks for the reply. Do I just leave it, cut the black buds off or think about digging it up? 
  • Planted it only a couple of months ago. Will leave it and see what happens, thanks for your help
