I’m harvesting dandelion greens, red clover, queen Ann’s lace, plantain etc from my yard.
My question is when I dry them should I store them separate or can I store them together and use them together?

I plan to make infusions, salves, teas and creams.

I’m also harvesting roots and wonder if I should keep them deprecate or if I can mix those with other roots and use them as a combination. They would be dandelion, plantain, chickory, queen Ann’s lace, burdock and mullein.

You can store together, but you might have difficulty telling them apart once dried as the shape changes considerably. Especially true of roots.

You might consider adding tincture to your plans.

Considering your list (and what else might be around) , you might add wild lettuce/sow thistle, nettle, and violets to your supplies.
