Get Badly Behaved aims to offer a slice of my fresh, politely rebellious approach to gardening, cooking and life in general.

There’s more of my badly behaved gardening antics from the Guardian, my time and money saving tips from Grow Your Own and Country Smallholding Magazine (among others). Plus much more of a make, mend and ‘let’s be more resilient’ nature besides…

Plus there’s my new social enterprise Green Rocket Futures C.I.C which offers a range of gardening courses at my smallholding in the stunningly beautiful, wild, wild West of Wales. All profits from which go towards creating therapeutic gardening opportunities for those on the autistic spectrum. It’s a subject close to my own heart as my gorgeous 8 -year-old son, Arthur has ASD. 

Before we start though you have to promise me one thing; the next time someone says ‘oh no that’s not how you’re supposed to do it’ or ‘ooh no that won’t work’, remember they could well be talking out their bottom.  In this increasingly worrying little world of ours, it’s more important than ever to stand up for what you believe in and to create little empowering freedoms from convention where-ever you can.  So…if something makes sense to you and you want to try it out, please ignore the silly cynics and just go for it…
