It depends on whether or not you either bury them, lay them flat on the
ground or elevate them a significant distance in terms of wavelength. If
you bury them or lay them on the ground the 40 meter 1/4 w/l will be okay on
20. If you elevate them (for 7 mhz 6 feet would probably be okay) then I
think you need radials cut to each band you want to operate.
If you haven't bought your wire yet, you'll have to rob a bank first. I
heard last night that #14 and #12 cu wire prices have gone to the moon. A
guy I know paid $90 for 500' of #12 at one of the big box stores. 500' of
#14 is around $40. It was $15 two years ago.
