Cant you get credit limit increases without HP thats what im asking how to do , or can you not do that in garden . Im new here and at this credit stuff sorry.

Yes you can SP CLI and still be in the garden. HOWEVER you should be 100% certain that it will be a SP, Citibank and Discover will tell you before hand online if it will. It'll say something like this check will not affect your credit. Looking at your sig those cards are most DEFINATLY hard pulls.

So basically do nothing but wait on auto increases?

Thats up too you, If it were me, and I was in your position I'd garden for 6-12 months then app for a "prime cards" (discover, amex, chase). The cards you have reallly wont grow with you, but everyone starts somewhere. My 2cents.

Have you attempted to remove your baddies? That would help more than adding more credit lines or limits I would think.
