Niermeyer is also helpful.

Diefenbach, "Glossarium latino-germanicum mediae et infimae aetatis" (1857)  and his "Novum glossarum ..." (1867) collect the medieval and early modern latin-german glossary entries in manuscripts of the time.

The small Taschen-Heinichen mentions also a good deal of medieval word meanings.

For plant names, you best check the herbals, e.g. the "Herbal of Rufinus", and the medical text about simplicia.
