Hi April,

The best time to plant citrus trees is either spring or autumn, when growth is happening. If you plant too late in summer it may be too hot and the plant may suffer if it is not watered enough. Avoid winter planting with citrus as they can be frost intolerant.

Planting the citrus far apart usually only matters for the amount of seed within the fruit, it does not affect the fruit itself and you usually need them to be very far apart. Bees can fly quite a distance, so neighbors trees can even affect this.
