Option 1 has some thread groups
that do what you want(easiest)

If using JMeter byitself then you have some options
a. Multiple thread groups that start at scheduled times
b. Create the number of threads in a threadgroup as a property. Invoke
Jmeter using ant or something with different values
c. Use Ramp up time creatively along with sync timers.
