Yes, you can prune them now. Cut off about 1/3 to 1/2 of the woody stems on the plant to help get rid of the legginess and encourage new, green growth. They may not look great when you first put them back outside, but they recover amazingly fast. In just a week or two after putting them back outside, you will see them regrow and start looking great again.
