They have self-seeded in one part of our garden.
The ripe seed fell on the ground, it wasn't covered though autumn leaves would have covered them later in the year (leaf-mould is supposed to be helpful in germination of some seeds). So I would guess that sowing in late summer/early autumn would be best.
We don't get extremely cold in winter though,
