Linseed oil on cedar planters

I got a new cedar planter that’s been finished with linseed oil. I transplanted my Virginia Creeper in it this year from terra cotta pots. It’s in the same location on my patio where the pots were and the plants are not dying, there is new growth but it’s not as prolific as it’s been in the past 4 years. Usually by now, I’ve had to prune it back a few times. Does the linseed oil have anything to do with its stunted growth?

To my knowledge the Linseed Oil should have no bearing on the plants.
