One option is to make longer coil and insert an iron rod in it (note that wire used for coil has to be insulated). Iron strengthens magnetic field which will now be "longer". Make sure your fluorescent light lies on line with coil (see ASCII art below)

But I hope you don't mind frying all electronics in range and to blow the fuses in your switchboard.
Energywise what you are trying is about as efficient as using a bathroom heater as a reading light.

I made a microwave cannon that would light up a fluorescent at 30 feet. It didn't fry any thing but my neighbour called the cops when it messed up his TV during the hockey game.
