A weeping white mulberry was planted in 2000 on the north side of the gardens, on the lawn by the north-east gate leading to Paternoster Row. Silk and mulberry author J Feltwell in his Story of Silk (1990) shows a black and white photo of two mature black mulberry trees close to what looks like the south transept. They don't seem to be there today. There is a large sweetgum in this place now though. There is a mature black mulberry nearby by the carpark in in Amen Court (private but visible through a gate).
