Need advice for buying flowers

Most important factors: price, freshness

Where is the best place to buy flowers? I'm currently buying small cheap bouquets from convenience stores and assembling several of them into larger bundles -- I'm wondering where the best place (price wise) is to buy flowers for creating bouquets, and also when the best time to buy them (to ensure that they are fresh)

If you're close to one, I suggest buying from a grower or greenhouse operation. Generally less expensive and fresher, with a better quality product.
