Probably as soon as you can afford it. If you have Flowers somewhere in your party of 5, you'll have +6 to all luck rolls - and that affects blacksmith and harvesting/mining success too. Of course, if you want a barbarian, bard or any of the other non-default classes in your party, wait until then.
On a different note, I think there should be a way to leave existing party members at an inn, Dragon Quest style, so you can try out new characters and classes without having to delete characters.
