How often should you stretch?

When is the most ideal time to stretch? (e.g. mornings, evenings, prior to, or post workouts) How frequently Should you do it? How long do you typically spend stretching? (I was told a good stretch can last anywhere from 10-30 minutes depending on how vigorous the activity you're doing is).
