This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. See the FAQ for guidance on how to improve it.
According to the Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary it means in an untidy way that lacks any order.
For more definitions, and usage examples, try Wordnik.
It can also mean a type of humorous verse, in which the first line is supposed to be "higgledy piggledy" or some other (often nonsense) word(s) of the same meter. See here for a number of examples.
