they should come up because of the auto=start. You can do it manually with
ipsec auto --up first-subnet

If it is already half-up and there is a problem, you will see it better if you do:

ipsec auto --replace first-subnet
ipsec auto --up first-subnet

Personally, I never put the auto= keyword in an also= section. First, you cannot 
flip individual conns that include the same also, but second you might get an
error when the base-conn tries to go up, which might not be what you want
(in this case a host-subnet tunnel)
