Back in early May we discussed this book

SABINE KARG (ed.). Medieval food traditions in Northern Europe  
(Publications from the National Museum, Studies in Archaeology and  
History 12). Copenhagen: National Museum of Denmark, 2007.

I have interlibrary loaned it, so I've seen the actual volume.
The one thing the volume provides is lists of plant names in Latin,  
and then by country. So there are plants listed there as found in  
settlements from Finland, Norway, Denmark, etc. If you are interested  
in which plants were found where, this is the book.
Purchase or not?
I would think it would be worthwhile interlibrary loaning before  
trying to order it so you can see it and make your own decision about  
how useful it is to you.

What we have found out so far is that it's very expensive to order and  
shipping is almost as much as the book. We haven't found a vendor at a  
reasonable price.
