dyeing fabrics

Hello everybody!
I have question
What substances and plants could be used for dyeing fabrics
I think they could use nettle, oak bark, madder, buckthorn and indigo
and also that you can paint?

I have used nettles, madder, saffron and alum
and for that you will be properly used on the early Middle Ages

Are you looking for general dyeing stuff or dyeing relevant to a particular culture or time period?
