You can do them 2 ways.............Autumn or Spring.
Personally, I would sow them now. They will germinate fairly quickly but you will need to grow them on ( deep narrow pots are best to accommodate the long root ) and then plant out next year.
It might be helpful to check out David K's thread on Sweet Peas.......I'm thinking the basics are the same. I don't currently grow Sweet Peas but do have the everlasting.
Hope this gives you a start anyway......IMO they are useful plants to have around
