I brought my begonia plant inside during the winter, but have moved it outside now. It bloomed all last summer and during winter, but looks really spindly now. What should I do?

You can actually prune the plant back to within 3 inches of the soil.

The plant will began to send out new shoots and be much better shaped.
Keep the plant dead headed and pinch back when stems get too long.
