Boreal Aquatics

Boreal Aquatics is a Saskatoon based company that specializes in the propagation and sale of zone 0-3 boreal wetland and aquatic plants. The proprietors are Sylvan Katz and Jennifer Osachoff. Their interest in ponds and water gardens began when they lived in the UK and carried on upon their return to Saskatchewan. Jennifer is a certified Master Gardener with a background in healthcare. She received the University of Saskatchewan Master Gardener of the year for 2010. Sylvan is a research scientist with a background in biology, physics and computer science.

Small numbers of stock plants are collected from Saskatchewan's boreal parkland and forest area. They are propagated in tanks and artificial bogs to test their suitability for use in domestic ponds and water gardens.

Vigourous parent plants are identified and propagated for sale. A variety of overwintering techniques are tested on each plant type. For some plants seed viability is checked when appropriate.
